WILD WALES - windy

What a day - just an hour and a bit from home and we were on the wind and windy coast of North Wales. People were unable to get out of their cars because of the wind pressing on the doors. But what a clarity of air, what a vista. We were able to easily make out Snowdon, all the great peaks, the wide vista that is the Llyn Peninsula and finally Bardsey Island.

On the way back around breath taking lakes, reservoirs and highs and lows I was able to make out Bird Island. Bird Island is very much inland but was once a cliff face right up to the wild sea. Thousands of years on cormorants, shags and other sea-birds still nest on its cliff face.
Our final adventure was to follow a sign to 'Nature Reserve' off the mountain road to/from Machynlleth. DON'T DO IT!! We wondered if we would ever get back ... there is wild and there is WILD ... it was that one. Over an hour later we checked to see if it said 'unsuitable for cars' NO!
